Are you in a workout rut? Do you want to re-vamp your fitness routine but just don’t know where to start? Fear no more- I’m trying out different workouts so you don’t have to! So here’s my plan: I’m going to try a different workout routine every month until I find something I can commit to. This series, which I’m calling ‘My journey to getting back in shape,’ will give you front-row access to my personal experiment. I promise to always be truthful—about the good, the bad, and the ugly!
Here’s a little background on my fitness habits. Thankfully, I’ve never struggled with weight, but I’ve definitely gone through unhealthy stages in my life. I try my best to eat well and live a healthy lifestyle, but there is always room for improvement! At the end of the day, I want a solid fitness routine that I can stick to—and enjoy. It’s easier to be my healthiest self when I actually like what I’m doing!
I cannot rationalize splurging on a gym membership for upwards of $100 a month. Who says you can’t get a great workout without breaking the bank? Also, I’m a busy lady; I feel like a real-life Superwoman most days. 9-hour workdays, throwing it down in the kitchen, keeping up with my book clubs, maintaining a social life, and, of course, writing for our amazing blog are just a few of my everyday responsibilities. Finding time to work out with my busy schedule usually just leads to skipping the gym altogether.
Take #1: Daily Burn
DailyBurn’s affordable monthly fee is perfect for my hectic lifestyle. I’m psyched to start getting killer sessions in at home. That way, I can prep dinner and burn calories as it cooks—with the added plus of taking in the wonderful aroma from the oven to my mat! Multi-tasking at its best!
DailyBurn is super easy to use and can be streamed to any device: Chromecast, Roku, AppleTV, you name it! I’m pretty confident I’ll be able to commit to this routine without any excuses. I’m also super pumped because I was able to sign up for the 30-day free trial.
We all know that working out and eating well go hand-in-hand if you’re looking to see results. That being said, I’m not a big believer in diets or a prescribed meal plan. I don’t do well with too much structure, so I won’t be following the suggested meals provided by DailyBurn…to a T, at least. Instead, I’ll use them as a guideline, making necessary revisions to fit my life and tastes.
Wish me luck ladies—and stay tuned for the next installment of my journey with Daily Burn!
